Guardian APS


Value & Reliability

Easy wiring access and configuration are at the heart of the Guardian, the latest independent system from PedSafety. This complete MUTCD, ADA, and TAC compliant APS solution has a simple and flexible configuration, and delivers safety, simplicity, reliability, and cost-effectiveness at any intersection.

Touchless actuation is now available with the new Guardian Wave.

As a testament to its simplicity, the Guardian is a cabinet-free, completely independent pedestrian system. Encompassing everything agencies know and trust about PedSafety APS devices, the Guardian now offers greater sound quality and control, and provides an ambient gain compensation locator tone, extended press options, vibro-tactile walk indications, and optional clearance phase indications; all adjustments and settings can be made at the pedestrian station via USB connection or Bluetooth through the PedConnex® utility.
